ninth symphony films - movie reviews

ABOUT


for anchorman: the legend of ron burgandy, many of the actors, as well as Will Ferell, were well versed in the art of improvisation and would sometimes do up to 20 different versions of reaction lines trying out the first thing that popped into their heads.


there were no white castles in the filming location of harold and kumar go to white castle so a building was trucked in for filming.


for the character of sonny the accused robot in i, robot, the effects team used the same process that was used to create gollum in the lord of the rings: the two towers.


very early on in hellboy's preproduction, the filmmakers considered putting hellboy's giant stone hand on his left arm rather than the right, so as to grant the actor playing hellboy the full use of his right hand. star ron perlman proved to be left-handed, so the filmmakers were able to preserve the "right hand of doom."


13 going on 30 was shipped to theatres under the name "sugar and spice" to hide the picture's real name and allow it to arrive in secret.


About My Reviews:

When you read my reviews, be prepared to jump right into the action. I don't usually spend many lines on what the story is about. If you want to know the basics of the plot, there should be a short summary of the film on the right side of each review page. I get these from the imdb, and they're pretty short. if you want more specifics, I suggest you visit that site: Internet Movie Data Base, because I figure they've got the best handle on movie info. And if you're reading one of my reviews, chances are you already know what the movie's about anyhow.

Should you be reading my reviews?

I write my reviews to be read by all types of people, and create them hoping that they never seem too complicated or snobby. There's nothing worse than a movie reviewer who thinks all his readers are Cornell graduates. So when you read my reviews, they should tell you a little bit about my impressions about the movie, why or why I don't believe you should see it, and some movie info that you might not find by just watching the film.

Who am I?

My name is Kelsey Wyatt and I am a writer in living Southern California. I received my MFA in screenwriting in May of 2003. Am I qualified to write reviews? Well, academically, I might be. But I also like movies of all shapes and sizes, and have been an avid movie-goer since I saw Return of the Jedi when I was four and a half years old. To put it mildly, I love film, plain and simple, never mind that I've spent thousands of dollars learning all about it....

Can I put you in contact with your favorite movie star?

NO, I CANNOT CONTACT YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE STAR FOR YOU! Most of the questions I get from readers involve some sort of plea for the contact information for an actor or director. I do not know any of the people who make these films. I have no idea how to contact Brad Pitt, I do not know Michael Bay's phone number, and there's no way I can get an original draft of The Others for you. There are several celebrity contact sites on the internet. I suggest you visit one of those sites to find your information!
